Indiana State Route 446 is a 24-mile route connecting the east side of Bloomington to points south, including recreation areas along Lake Monroe, eventually ending at US Route 50 east of Bedford. The northern end on the east side of Bloomington is at Indiana Route 46, making Route 446 an Indiana state highway that actually connects to its parent! Indiana Route 446 doesn't really pass through any towns, but it is a scenic winding road useful to people seeking a fun getaway among nature! The route is signed as east-west, even though the path between endpoints is clearly north-northwest or south-southeast, as the crow flies.
My photo of Indiana Route 446 is the southern end marker, at US Route 50 east of Bedford. INDOT has the habit of placing guide markers and end markers on the far side of the road, which means that drivers have to see through cross-traffic to read the signs, and also that I unfortunately have to stand on lanes of live traffic to take photos like this one.
